Applicants who are not US Citizens or Permanent Residents

Any documents or letters submitted in support of your application should be in English or should be accompanied by an English translation. Please do not send secondary school records.

The University requires applicants whose native language is not English to complete TOEFL, IELTS or Duolingo as proof of English proficiency.

To obtain a visa for study in the United States, international students must present the Certificate of Eligibility (I-20 or IAP-66) at a US consulate or embassy and demonstrate full proof of ability to pay all tuition and living expenses for the first year of study.

Note: University fellowships may not cover all of these expenses; students will ordinarily need some additional funds. The International Student Office will issue the I-20 or IAP-66 after a student has been admitted and demonstrated proof of his/her ability to pay all expenses for at least the first year of study.

For detailed information about visas please refer to the International Services Office.
